In the Senior Phase at all levels we continue to build on pupils’ prior learning and experiences in Drama skills and production skills.  All courses provide more scope for personalisation and choice, expression and skills development.

We continue to use the methodologies from Broad General Education but with more emphasis on independent learning and group work.  This leads to more successful learners.  Pupils are also expected to evaluate to a much higher degree.

At all levels, courses and units are internally assessed within the Drama department, subject to SQA verification and quality assurance.  The final examination for National 5 and Higher Drama entails are practical exam to a Visiting SQA Assessor and an externally assessed question paper. At Advanced Higher Drama level the final examination is a combination of a practical exam to a Visiting SQA Assessor and an externally examined dissertation.

Performance evenings to invited audiences are completed at all certificate levels.
